About this property

  • Sitting centrally within its garden, Grays Cottage, constructed of cobb under a thatched roof, dates from the late 18th Century and was originally two cottages. Now in need of a ground-up renovation, it offers huge potential to create a pretty family home within a spacious garden on the fringes of the New Forest.

    The front door opens into a dining room, with a brick fireplace, and through to the kitchen, which has a gas fired AGA and Belfast sink. The adjacent study opens through to a spacious sitting room, with an inglenook fireplace and a door into the garden. The rear of the property has a large laundry room, with adjacent utility room and separate WC, and also a spacious workshop with integral office.

    Two separate staircases, one at each end of the cottage, lead up to four bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, and a family bathroom.

    Outside
    The garden, largely laid to lawn, wraps around the cottage and has a number of mature trees around the boundary, including beech, sycamore, fig and silver birch. A double garage and a single garage, both in need of improvement, and a log store sit to one side of the gravel driveway.
